Stigmatizing women’s bodies
Does anyone else see a problem with this?
I ran into the website after reading Is the ‘Mom Job’ Really Necessary article from NYT this afternoon.
I don’t know which disturbs me more- the fact that the media and marketing have come up with YET ANOTHER thing to tell women is “wrong” with their bodies, causing even further-broken body images or this quote from the article, “There is more pressure on mothers today to look young and sexy than on previous generations, she added. “I don’t think it was an issue for my mother; your husband loved you no matter what,” said Ms. Birkland, who recently remarried.”
… I’ve got so many comments I don’t know where to start. And, frankly, so late in the day it’s probably best that I don’t.
